Luke 20:20-38

20 aSo they bwatched him and sent spies, who cpretended to be sincere, that they might dcatch him in something he said, so as to deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction of ethe governor. 21So they asked him, “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and fshow no partiality,
Greek  and do not receive a face
but truly teach hthe way of God.
22Is it lawful for us to give itribute to jCaesar, or not?” 23But he perceived their kcraftiness, and said to them, 24Show me la denarius.
A  denarius was a day’s wage for a laborer
Whose likeness and inscription does it have?”
They said, “Caesar’s.”
25He said to them, Then nrender to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 26And they were not able in the presence of the people oto catch him in what he said, but marveling at his answer they became silent.

Sadducees Ask About the Resurrection

27There came to him psome Sadducees, qthose who deny that there is a resurrection, 28and they asked him a question, saying, “Teacher, Moses wrote for us rthat if a man’s brother dies, having a wife but no children, the man
Greek his brother
must take the widow and raise up offspring for his brother.
29Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife, and died without children. 30And the second 31and the third took her, and likewise all seven left no children and died. 32Afterward the woman also died. 33In the resurrection, therefore, whose wife will the woman be? For the seven had her as wife.”

34And Jesus said to them, t“The sons of this age umarry and vare given in marriage, 35but those who are wconsidered worthy to attain to xthat age and to the resurrection from the dead yneither marry znor are given in marriage, 36for aathey cannot die anymore, because they are abequal to angels and acare adsons of God, being aesons
Greek huioi; see Preface
of the resurrection.
37But that the dead are raised, ageven Moses showed, in ahthe passage about the bush, where he calls aithe Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. 38Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for all ajlive to him.”
